Aviation's second moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the 2 new moderators are:

Federico Jamiec

They'll be joining the existing crew shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes!

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here, or view a summary report online.

  • $\begingroup$ Voting requires 150 rep. There are currently more than 1400 users that qualify, but only 219 voted. It seems a little low, but maybe it's on par with other Stack Exchange sites. Anyway, congratulations to both! $\endgroup$ – Fabio says Reinstate Monica Oct 4 '17 at 10:42

    $\begingroup$ @FabioTurati having the reputation does not equal active participation. I tend not to vote in elections of communities where I am not active, could be the same for others. $\endgroup$ – Federico Oct 4 '17 at 11:06

    $\begingroup$ Two important notes: first, the second moderator won by 77 to 68 in the final scoring round, a very narrow margin of just 11 votes. Second, while Jamiec wins several counting methods like IRV and SVT, he did not win the condorcet method. In layman's terms that means people who indicated a preference for Jamiec or SMS von der Tann tended to prefer SMS von der Tann 11 to 9. This is a real life example of why people obsess over vote-counting methods. $\endgroup$ – Cody P Oct 4 '17 at 20:57
